I get an error "unknownhostexception" when I try to download torrent files with this mod. I'm not the only one getting this error it seems, so i'm going to start a new forum topic and I'll post a solution if I find one.
any chance the tracker requires some sort of login or other authentication? Maybe we should all be testing on a single tracker to pinpoint where the issue is.

Any reason this won't install on 2.00.00 firmware? I keep getting this error: "Install module failed since Nas type or version not match.1"
I tried changing the install.rdf firmware specification but that doesn't seem to do anything.
Also, I would like to get in touch with you about developing modules. I installed a Debian chroot inside the RAID and have a bunch of apps running. It would be fun to get all of them wrapped up as modules instead. So please let me know how to get in touch with you. You can email me if you want: dc @ digitalchaos * us
My other N5200 has a freshly added VGA head, laptop hard drive, and is running Ubuntu Server with only one bug to sort out

My network settings specify both of the OpenDNS servers. I tried installing the .mod directly from your site and it gave me that error. I then extracted the install.rdf, changed the firmware specification, then placed the install.rdf back into the .mod (handled as a .tar.gz). Trying to install that .mod produced the same failed error message. Is there something more I should be doing to build the .mod?
I really don't know why it won't install, if the <md:NasVersion>2.00.04</md:NasVersion> in install.rdf > the firmware version of the NAS it should go.....
Can't you upgrade the 5200 firmware ? (as a work around)
Yea, I am going to be upgrading soon. I just figured it would be better to have it work on all the firmwares unless there was a known bug. I will try changing the .rdf again and pushing it through. Maybe the NAS has some weird caching going on with the .mod installs.
Well, anyway nothing works. I have setup the correct directory. But no torrents are starting. No connections with any peers. And if I try to restart the server from the azSMRC tool, the server crashs and I to disable/anable the module. Buggy
Just thought I'd post my resolution to no connections problem.
The way the 5200 works is a little different than I expected. I run a separate router so have no need of the built in thecus routing functionality. When I first set up my thecus, I set the 4 port switch to be the LAN and the single port to be the WAN (which I didn't use).
My router handles dhcp so I gave the thecus LAN a static IP and everything was fine. I later (much later) tried to get web disk access working but could not. I gave up and left it alone.
Now I was very insterested in running torrents directly from the thecus for the obvious benefits. I could not get it to connect to anything ever no matter what dns or port forwarding I setup. Eventually I discovered that the thecus does not access the LAN and WAN ports on the back in the same way. It will only try to connect these modules via the WAN port when they need to access the internet. No matter what settings you have on your LAN/WAN config, it will only access the internet via its WAN port/s.
So opposite to what I thought was logical, I have configured my thecus 4 port switch to be the WAN and the single port to be the LAN. I have still set the static ip on the thecus WAN to my chosen LAN ip address (even though the thecus considers it a WAN). So just to be clear, the thecus will only access the internet through its WAN port/s so I configure the thecus WAN settings to match with my own router LAN settings.
Here is a quick sample run down:
Router - IP: 10.0.0.254 Router - DHCP Range: 10.0.0.1-10.0.0.99 Thecus - set WAN to the 4 port switch: (WAN IP Sharing turned on but don't know if I needed to) Thecus - Static IP of WAN is: 10.0.0.100 Thecus - DNS set to router 10.0.0.254 and ISP DNS (their primary and secondary) settings, so 3 in total Thecus - LAN ip set to 10.0.100.100 (this port is not even plugged in, just needed to be something outside of my LAN range)
I then port forward whatever ports I need for the thecus on my router: torrent port set to forward to 10.0.0.100 and it all worked.
Sorry if this was confusing but I hope this helps. It was annoying to have to totally reconfigure the system this way and reboot the thecus several times and wait for the 10 minute boot up time that happens (on mine anyway) but I now understand how they view the networking on their device.
Drewy first of all, azureus module rocks. Respect!! for all the hard and good work you putted in too it.
I had a question about the module, ive read your guide how to install and tried the azsmrc client (couldnt get it to work with my primairy OS [Linux Ubuntu 8.10]). So tried with Windows there i could it get to work, and sniffed all the configuration options.
My question was, is it possible to create a torrent file in the WebUI of azureus module, and or change the directory of the torrent when you upload a torrent with the WebUI of azureus module this all without using azsmrc.
Why i ask these questions is Because my Directorys on my NAS N5200B Pro arent in the "torrents" directory so its kind of nice to have torrents ONLINE all the time to share with friends.
If aint possible still the module rocks!! +1
NAS: Thecus N5200B Pro CPU: 2.26GHz (SL7VB) RAM: 1 GB OS: Linux Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS (Linux Kernel: 3.2.0-34) Apps: Deluge torrent server, SABnzbd-server, Webmin, LAMP-Server, proFTPD, PS3 Media server, openssh, phpMyAdmin Aray: 1 HD = JBOD & 4 HD = RAID 6 HDs: 1 x 1000GB Western Digital WD10000FYPS RE2-GP / 4 x 2000 GB Western Digital WDC WD20EARS-00M Filesystems: Ext4
i have no idea what you can really do with the html client as I don't use it, it seems farely limited. If you look at the thread about safepeer and azureus I show how to run the azureus client at the command line (on the 5200). If you do the and type 'set', you'll get to see all the options. You should then be able to change the default save directories at this level, these will persist when you restart the module.
So i got the modules to show up in AzSMRC, copied modules to /raid0/data/module/AZUR/system/bin/azureus/.azureus/plugins
status mailer is showing up but settings are not being saved, speed scheduler does not show config page or stop downloading according to the schedule.
First off much KUDOS and many a thank you to 'drewy' for an excellent contribution to the N5200 module library. I migrated away from using mldonkey a few weeks back and have been very happy with Azureus running on my NAS box. Like a few others here I wanted to add functionality with the available plug-ins but can't seem to get past copying the plug-in files into the N5200.
I am a Linux Neanderthal and use SSH Explorer (nice & cosy windows environment) to carry out the bare minimum I need to get a Linux box to do the things I need.
I followed the instructions in the several posts by 'thecususeratxf8' on this thread (above) and cannot seem to get any plug-ins I have copied over to my N5200 running or even showing up in AzSMRC. I have tried:
